What I'd like to do is just get my ticker to reflect my most recent high weight--165 lbs--instead of showing where I started last year, at 161.8. I'm not yet back down to that weight yet and it's discouraging seeing my marker off there in left field, and not showing any pounds lost between 165 and 161.8! laugh

Frick, never mind, I figured it out. I knew that would happen the instant I posted a question in this forum. blushing

tools > ticker > update weight data
to start...
start.. current and goal are the 3 values you can edit there

If that doesn't fix it see

my home > check in > edit previous entries

ticker and badge on "my home" are dumb tools.. they compare solely your starting weight (first weight entered into MFP by calendar date even if it was a total guess) to your current weight... so..
starting at 150 gaining to 160 and losing to 151... still 1 lb heavier than you started so no loss to report
starting at 160 gaining to 165 and losing to 155... down 5 lbs from your start so that's what is reported

Both are "fixed" to show your "total" loss by backdating prior to your start date and entering your new highest weight (if you want an accurate record of weights for your time in MFP... ) if you don't mind not having the actual original weight you can just delete the first weigh in and replace it with your new high.
